Subject[PATCH] ftrace: move function_stats out of __initdata
Not marking ftrace_init_tracefs() as __init causes a link time warning:

WARNING: vmlinux.o(.text+0xf5fcc): Section mismatch in reference from the function ftrace_init_tracefs() to the (unknown reference)

The problem here is that ftrace_init_tracefs() now gets called by
init_tracer_tracefs(), which cannot be __init because it is called
post init-time from instance_mkdir(). The function calls to the
init-time ftrace_init_dyn_tracefs() and ftrace_profile_tracefs()
functions apparently only happen for the initial call to
ftrace_init_tracefs(), so we could safely ignore the warning, but
at the same time, it all gets inlined anyway and we may as well
remove the annotations.

The alternative would be restructuring the code so we only call
trace_create_file() from init_tracer_tracefs(), but not the other
init-time functions.
